Autism Is: Helping peers understand peers

AUTISM IS: The Interactive Classroom Experience (An evidence-based curriculum for General Education K-12) 

http://www.autismistheinteractiveclassroomexperience.com/


This curriculum has incorporated the common core standards.  It is designed to sensitize students to kids with Autism.  Ultimately, the students are encouraged to explore their thoughts and feelings about, and describe current interactions with, classmates on the Autism Spectrum.  After exposure to the curriculum, the students are asked to explore the possible differences in their thoughts and feelings about people on the Spectrum.  The changes in their perceptions and behavior towards their classmates positively impact the school environment.
